Black Jack Men’s Pirarucu Fish Saddle Tan Western Boots

Black Jack boots are famous for the exotic leathers they use to hand-make every pair of their upscale western boots. These “Black Jack Men’s Pirarucu Fish Saddle Tan Western Boots” are an example of what you might expect from them.

The revered bootmaker is proud to say that all their boots are made right here in the United States. This boot uses the scales of a giant freshwater fish found in the Amazon River of South America. The Pirarucu fish can reach a length of 8 feet. Its scales are highly mineralized and extremely tough. The structure of those scales is much like that of plywood and its many layers which lay at right angles to each other. That’s what gives this fish leather its extraordinary strength and toughness.

Above all, the intricate details of this leather give these boots a memorable appearance, unlike any other leather used in the manufacture of boots. These particular Black Jacks feature a snip toe and a 4-½” heel. The scales are done in an attractive saddle tan which highlights the cognac goat leather shafts.
